I liked Bramblett until he blocked me on Twitter, and I was responding to his partner anyway. Politely, with factual data I might add. A shame they're both so thin skinned. But he is a good play by play announcer.Rod Bramblett's voice is just not soothing to one's ears.
That was huge. Also huge was that Shelby and Baldwin County both had THOUSANDS less votes for Moore in 2017 compared to Moore. I think one had 20k less votes and the other had 25k less. I had it written down somewhere as I was doing manual calculations all last night compared to 2012 Moore/Vance race.Alabama swing counties?
Tuscaloosa County, home to the University of Alabama and Lee County, home to Auburn University went big for Trump in 2016. Trump won Tuscaloosa by 19 and Lee by 23.
On Tuesday, they headed in the opposite direction and went Jones. The Democrat won each of those counties by 17 points.
Many people thought Jones could improve upon Hillary Clinton’s 2016 performance, but no one foresaw Jones winning and winning by such a margin.
https://www.politico.com/story/2017/12/13/jones-alabama-moore-trump-strange-295328Doug Jones, the new senator-elect from Alabama, said Wednesday that President Donald Trump had invited him to visit the White House following his victory over Republican nominee Roy Moore.
“He congratulated me on the race we won,” Jones said while addressing reporters in Birmingham for the first time since delivering his victory speech the night prior. “He congratulated me and my staff on the way we handled this campaign and went forward. And we talked about finding that common ground to work together.”
He added: “He invited me over to the White House to visit as soon as I get up there. Very nice phone call, very pleasant phone call, and I appreciated him very much reaching out to me.”
At which point Trump will shake Doug's hand and pull him in close like he always does as a power play, have a one-sided conversation then run to twitter to brag about reaching out while mixing in an insult or 3.

By remaining silent on the numerous allegations that Moore was a pedophile, Saban showed he does not care about the plight or protection of young women and girls.
https://www.seccountry.com/alabama/alabama-football-nick-saban-donationAlabama coach Nick Saban and his wife Terry continue to make a difference in the Tuscaloosa community with their Nick’s Kids Foundation.
The foundation donated a record $500,000 to 150 charities on Wednesday during its annual luncheon, pushing its total to $7 million during their time in Tuscaloosa.
“It means a lot to me,” Saban said Wednesday. “We always try look for ways to give back. It’s an example that we want to set for the community as well as our players in terms of someone that is in a position that people have a chance to look up to and maybe respect some of the things you do.”
A few of Nick’s Kids projects include:
o NKF has sponsored the building of 16 homes in honor of the 16 National Championships that UA Football has won
- 16 for 16 Home Building Project with Habitat for Humanity
o Honored 45 City of Tuscaloosa and Tuscaloosa County teachers for their dedication to educating the children in our community
- Nick’s Kids Playground along the Tuscaloosa Riverwalk
- Annual Teacher’s Excellence Awards Luncheon
- Nick’s Kids Playground at Alberta School of Performing Arts
- Major contributors to the new YMCA of Tuscaloosa
- Renovating the STTEP Building at Brewer Porch Children’s Cente
What a clueless, worthless colostomy bag Chuck Modiano is. He clearly doesn’t know what it takes to be successful like Saban, otherwise he wouldn’t be writing for that dishrag print NY Daily News.
Yep, Saban doesn't care about kids at all!
I don't think he will go away.... maybe run for governor? House of Rep?Maybe it's because I'm not as die-hard into college football as a lot of southerners are, but it's so weird to me that people care what Nick Saban thinks about anything outside of football. If you don't care about college football/Alabama football, he's irrelevant. Why the hell should a football coach come out and make a political stump speech?
Also, who thinks Moore will pay for the recount? As much as I'd like to never see or hear about him again, I'm a little curious to see what he does next. He's obviously not going to concede, so what's his plan besides being a complete maniac?
Anything in terms of elected office wise, his career is over. I can see him attempting to run but I don't think he has any real chance, especially since Kay Ivey will be the overwhelming favorite since Tommy Battle's campaign fell apart because of how he handled the Moore debacle early on.I don't think he will go away.... maybe run for governor?

Battle's campaign hasn't fallen apart and Ivey publicly stated she was voting for Moore, so that issue is effectively off the table between those two at least.Anything in terms of elected office wise, his career is over.

“I think there’s an opportunity at every turn,” he said on “Fox News Sunday,” before adding such cooperation is a “two-way street.”
